dc.description.abstract As we reflect on our teaching practices we may begin to question the relevance of what we teach. We may become aware of pockets of dissonance that cannot be ignored. We must confront the issues and be prepared to change what we may have always done. We need to challenge ‘common sense’ practice, and examine it in the light of changing society. This paper shares how the process of critical reflection enabled me to work toward the resolution of a personal professional dilemma. For sometime now I have felt uneasy about using the news, particularly televised news, as a text. My initial misgivings crystallised in response to unexpected learning outcomes as a result of studying the Olympic Games and the Presidential Elections in the USA. This paper challenges the use of the news as a text. en
